We've got moving siiiiign!!!

It's Friday. It doesn't seem like Friday, but it still is. For some reason I'm more likely to confuse days when I'm busy & productive rather than slothing it. Regardless, tonite we got Phill moved out of his cramped storage locker & into the new apartment. It was a single trip with a rented U-Haul fraught with a number of little annoyances. Examples:

  • He paid extra to rent a dolly but none was included with the truck.

  • After one load the elevator at the storage unit broke leaving us to carry everything else downstairs by hand.

  • Including hauling the flatbed freight cart that stays at the place back inside & up the stairs.

  • The idiot drivers come out of the back-alleys whenever I'm driving a large vehicle with huge blind spots.

  • The new apartment currently only has lights in the hallways & bathrooms.

  • The new apartment building has no way of chocking open the outside doors other than propping them with the furniture we had & subsequently tripping over them.


Despite all this we had everything done & the truck returned within three hours. Needing food badly I demanded we go get something to eat & found ourselves at Qdoba where I ate a burrito arguably larger than my stomach. Food was good, parking was free & we shook hands just minutes ago as we said goodbye & he left for his new home. I'm going to miss the company but it will be nice to have my living room back again.

Lots is* going on this weekend like Taste of Madison & the Rock River Thresheree, both of which I'd like to attend, but I still haven't decided on what exactly I'll be doing just yet. At present it looks like I'll be helping matt_william move if he has courage enough to call me in the morning. But for right now? I need a shower.

* Yes, I am aware this is improper grammar. I'm in quite a jovial mood tonite so quit trying to spoil it. :-P

Aside to Lindsay: My place is now available if you still need a place to crash before you're fully moved in. I should probably call since I saw your computer at the apartment already.

    So it looks like nobody I've been friends with since 2009 has been using LJ recently, which is kindof sad. Not that I've been part of the solution…

    I'm pretty sure none of the people that followed me & commented on my posts use LiveJournal any more. If you still do, please comment. - E V I…
